judiciary refuses to release candidate. It could be said this particular gridlock questions the success of the model as well as showing that years of autonomous status has not stopped the desire for Catalonian independence. Other examples of the use of regional autonomy include Sri Lanka, the Philippines and Bangladesh. In the case of Sri Lanka and the ongoing Tamil-Sinhalese Conflict various forms of regional autonomy have been promised but very little successfully attempted. There are minimal to no noticeable differences in rights to the Tamil minority since the conflict began in 1948, with both sides embroiled in constant conflict. Both India and Norway, as third parties, have attempted to facilitate the path to regional autonomy, to little avail proving that conflict peace building is a complicated and messy. The impact of power sharing on ethnic conflict An additional method employed to end ethnic conflict is power sharing. Power sharing is said to be a combination of autonomy and power sharing to employ a deal with restive ethnic groups. This method has emerged in Northern Ireland, Bosnia and Lebanon. The Northern Ireland Assembly, an autonomous body within the UK, adopted the consociationalism approach developed by Arend Lijphart. The Offical website for the Northern Irish Assembly defines its particular model as “the Agreement determined that the Executive Committee would be a power-sharing government, representing both unionists and nationalists” with particular focus on “cross-community power sharing at executive level”, “a proportional representation electoral system”, “cultural equality for the two main traditions” for example the development of the Irish language and Ulster Scots and “special voting arrangements that give veto rights to the minority”. Northern Ireland can be claimed to be a success, with some claiming it’s only “brought temporary calm” (Phillips) with many Catholics still facing the same representation problems today. The Assembly has seen its fair share of challenges, evident today as it still has no executive following its 2017 elections, and in the past when direct rule was imposed from London in October 2002 with devolved government not returning until March 2007 following the St Andrews Agreement (BBC History, n.d.). On the other hand the creation of the assembly and the passing of the Good Friday Agreement by British Prime Minister Tony Blair can be regarded as having many great achievements, the greatest arguably been creating an executive co-led by both Martin McGuiness, the former IRA leader, and Ian Paisley, a key figure head in the loyalist movements. “Many could simply not believe quite how well the Catholic nationalist Mr McGuinness would get on with the pro-Britain Protestant Mr Paisley when they were thrust together in 2007” (ITV, 2017).>GET ANSWER
